AllMusic Review by

Buddy Guy is, aside from being a stellar guitar player and an architect of the so-called West Side blues sound, a kind of bridge between the classic Chicago blues of artists like Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf and the modern blues-rock stylings of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and beyond, making him, at this point, a living legend. This set features some of his vintage Chess sides like his breakthrough 1960 singles "First Time I Met the Blues" and its follow-up, "Broken Hearted Blues." It’s a great place to start, but there’s so much more.
